Use the Vinegary wine as Vinegar in your salad.
When i was a kid, I think my grandfather used to make wine and if any went off it was used for Vinegar...man it was good. Not sure if you can do that with yours...or if its only the homemade wines..but oh man it was good!

When I run out of Marsala (or vice-versa), I use Porto wine.
It is not exactly the same, but a close flavor.

In my opinion you cannot cook with cheap anything, or you'll hav the cheap result in the end.

Rom - maybe blutch will come back and read your response but if he hasn't been back in two years I bet he's not coming back!

All wines will turn vinegary if left out or have just been open too long. What a great memory you have of your grandfather making wine!

Amen to CharlieD comment:
If it is not good to drink, it is not good to cook.
Give it to your dog or your Mother-in-Law (just kidding)

Yes, what CharlieD said is correct but the use of the word "cheap" can be misleading. There are MANY inexpensive wines that would be great to cook with as well as drink. But reading through this thread I don't think that is in question - only the use of and lack of marsala wine is in question.

Hi blutch,
I get a longer keep on wine if in addition to putting it in the frige I use a Vac-u-vin plug on the bottle the vaccum slows oxidation further than just chilling
